F17D NC2663 1939-..-.. mfd
1939-10-01 J. H. Wright, Wright Motion Pictures Inc, Jamestown (NY)
1940-05-19 flown by Frederick C. Larson, aileron & wing flutter (about 5 inches movement) caused failure of both upper wings in approach to Falconer Airport, Jamestown (NY) in bumpy but not unusually severe weather, extensive structural wing failure but continued in flight and landed safely.
After this accident and that of c/n 234, 244 and 309, CAA issued Airworthiness Bulletin No. 26, defining limits on operating of Model E17 and F17 Stags. After accident c/n 187 Model D17 was then included remedial actions: BSB.76 required statically-balancing of ailerons on the Models B17 and C17. Models D17, E17 and F17 were covered by BSB.74 and BSB.75 required addition of a plywood panel outboard of the “I” strut of each wing for increased torsional stiffness and both the ailerons and flaps were to be statically balanced with lead weights ahead of the hinge line.
